Docklands Yacht Club hosted a multicultural Try Sailing Day on Victoria Harbour on March 20.A joint venture between the Western Bulldogs, Docklands Yacht Club and sponsored by the Victorian Multicultural Commission saw more than 70 people attend. The weather conditions were perfect for novice sailors. The group was aged from eight to more than 60 and came from many cultures including Burma, Liberia, Ethiopia, China, Indonesia and Australia. Most were from refugee backgrounds and have been in Australia less than five years. “The community spirit was wonderful to see in the group who were happy, co-operative and prepared to volunteer,” training officer Coral Allen said. “That’s what multicultural Australia is all about.”

Comment Guidelines: The SportsTG Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.
